 Re: C# key pad not rising

Some woodwind repairers who only tend to see flutes, clarinets and saxes aren't always clued up on the finer details of setting up oboes, so they will either leave wide open or close some keys down fully that are meant to have some minimal movement in them or try to eliminate double action (lost motion) by closing down or opening up the ventings on other keys.

And with conservatoire or dual systems with a closed standing forked F vent, they don't understand how it works and will see it opens and closes with RH3, but often don't realise it also has to close with RH2 while RH3 is held down, so that impairs the notes from low Eb downwards.

So wherever possible, have your oboes worked on by oboe specialists.
